Some Wolverhampton Wanderers fans are hoping to see Fabio Silva start against Liverpool on Monday.
The 18-year-old has had to be content with a place on the bench for the past few weeks following the arrival of Willian Jose.
But the Brazilian is finding goals hard to come by in England, and hasn’t actually found the net yet in old gold.
But Nuno Espirito Santo has been persisting with the South American, who has, in fairness, shown some good link-up play at times.
But that lack of a first goal is now leading to conversations on social media about his place in the starting XI.
Silva is without a start in the Premier League for Wolves since January 16 when he scored in the 3-2 defeat to West Bromwich Albion.
Since then it’s been cameo after cameo for the teenager, but he has actually looked quite good.
He’s certainly been enthusiastic and shown superb movement – he’s just lacked that cutting edge and also been a little unlucky.
Some fans feel it is now time for him to reclaim his place in the starting XI, beginning against Premier League champions Liverpool, who are in alarming form at the moment.
Here’s what some people have said:
he should start but nuno will probably just throw podence straight back in

Yes but would like us to go 4-2-3-1 to help him,and tell Pedro and adama to tuck in a bit more,but guess it will be 3-4-3,but still yes and still get them tucked in and wing backs push up wide
